Excellent food!

Wonderful little place to eat! The food was fantastic, homemade and full of taste. Excellent, friendly service. Price is a bit on the high side, but worth it.

Hubby and I came in for the first time today. The staff is very friendly and the food is wonderful!! Fresh, homemade, large portions and tastes amazing. Hubby had breakfast, with the best bacon he can remember. I had from scratch chicken pot pie with heavenly pastry, and the best broccoli cheddar soup ever!! We WILL be back!! Thank you!!

After reading all of the great reviews, we were excited to try Bear's for the first time a few weeks ago. We were hoping for a "home cooked" meal as it was our Thanksgiving dinner. The food was edible... that's about all. We had the Thanksgiving dinner special, which had an Ukranian twist - served with perogies. The perogies were... More

So glad we followed the trip advisor recommendation. We would not have given the spot a second glance. Looks more like it will be a store and is tucked on a side street south of the main town area. We had the most delicious meat pies! I wanted to lick my plate! Go for the larger portion as the small... More

We were looking for an all day breakfast place when an internet search led us to Bear's. We were so enticed by the homemade options on the menu opted to forgo breakfast for delicious steak & mushroom pies. Our only disappointment was that we didn't order the large. The gravy was rich, the pastry 'melt in your mouth' and it... More

Good tasty homemade food even gluten free options. Friendly fun bear hugging experience as well. Very tasty French Pea soup and scrumptious New York Cheesecake with lots of whipped cream and blueberry sauce. Other toppings were offered.

The service was excellent, food is decent, but the prices are way too high. Kids meals are $10, and do not include a drink which is $3 more. Chicken fingers tiny and over cooked. Side of poutine for $9??? Unfortunately we will not be back as these prices are unaffordable for a family to dine out.

Since we just moved here... We've been running around alot. We look to find our place we can call our own. I come from a small town and I don't take away how hard it is to run a business. Ive been there 2 days. Ive NEVER seen such amazing people. What they do, in and out of the kitchen... More

We love eating at Bear's! JJ is a wonderful lady, they have terrific food, mostly made from scratch. "Best Reuben Ever". Great variety in the menu, everything from homemade pot pies to breakfast, to steak. The atmosphere is great, reflecting their love of music and free wifi. And the homemade pies... We will be back next summer!
